Description

Jake Mercerís life is spiraling out of control. As a criminal profiler and one of the senior homicide investigators in the Oakland Police Department, heís spent the last twenty-five years getting into the heads of killers trying to understand the way they think. Heís the best at what he does but constantly playing in the minds of madmen carries a heavy price, leaving Jake an out of shape, alcoholic loner suspended from active duty.

The murders have started.

Another serial killer is prowling the streets now, a lunatic whoís making a game of nailing retired Catholic priests to trees and bridges and hydro poles around the city. Torture and murder isnít enough, theyíre experimenting with the bodies to further whatever diabolical plan only they seem to know.

The experiments have begun.

Broken down or not, Lieutenant Mercer might be the only man who can catch this killer before the city starts to panic. Back on duty and trying his best to stay out of the bottle, Jake finds himself teamed up with two rookie detectives in what will be his most difficult case ever, and possibly his last...

Holes for Faces by Ramsey Campbell

Hey folks, I'm sending this mass-forum message to inform you of a new collection from an author that I admire and respect greatly. Truthfully, Ramsey is one of the few authors that can still genuinely scare me. I like that. He also happens to be one of the finest dark fiction writers we have.

Find the information below. Holes for Faces is launching on Tuesday, August 13th on DarkRegions.com, Amazon.com and Amazon Kindle. Signed limited edition hardcover preorders include trade paperback and/or ebook editions.

for immediate release:


Holes For Faces by Ramsey Campbell
Launching Tuesday, August 13th on DarkRegions.com, Amazon.com and Amazon Kindle

One of the most respected living horror writers in the world, Campbell has more awards for his horror tales than any other author, and "is likely to be remembered as the leading horror writer of our generation," according to S.T. Joshi. One of the heirs apparent to early-twentieth-century American author H. P. Lovecraft, Campbell's horror stories are often set in contemporary Merseyside, England, his own hometown, and involve quite ordinary characters. His unsettling, dreamlike prose, however, transforms his work into very effective horror fiction.

Holes for Faces collects many of his best tales from the first decade of this century. An attempt to avoid a haunted house leads into worse danger. The announcements at a railway station deal with stranger things than trains, and is that another railway station in the distance or a different kind of destination? A childhood game becomes a source of terror, and so does a radio quiz show. Even Christmas decorations may not be trusted, and beware of that Advent calendar! A hotel provides amenities you mightnít welcome, and a visit to a tourist attraction attracts an uninvited follower. A train journey may never end, unless it already has, and a visit to a hospital brings back more than memories. A myth about a horror film has unwanted consequences. There are angels you mightnít want to see too clearly, if thatís what they are. And youíll have to decide if itís better to stay in the dark or see whatís waiting there. Youíll find uncanny dread in these pages, and disquiet and terror, but also poignancy and comedy of paranoia. One theme runs through all the stories: youth and age.

Praise for Holes for Faces

"Consider Holes for Faces another textbook by one of our best practitioners, an essential addition to the bookshelves of horror readers and writers alike." - FEAR NET

"Holes For Faces is a must-read for Ramsey Campbell fans, collecting his best stories from this fledgling century we find ourselves in. And if youíve not been introduced to Mr. Campbell yet, then I can think of no better place to start." - The Occult Detective (author Bob Freeman)

"...a superb collection of stories of the strange and the dark that Iím sure fans of the genre will love. I know I did." - The Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog

"The title story, ďHoles for Faces,Ē is a tale of sliding realities in which our protagonist sees a very different world around him. He becomes aware of the horrors that no one else can see. These stories reflect Campbellís ability to take normal and tilt it just far enough to create fear. This could happen to you he reminds us and that is the greatest fear of all." - Horror Novel Reviews

"...as the reader progresses into the tales, the tension increases as the stories become more sinister and, well, down right creepy in that some of the stories make us question our innermost selves. In reading "Holes For Faces", which I have enjoyed immensely, I discovered that my personal favorites are "Getting It Wrong," "Holes for Faces", and "The Rounds"." - Widescreen Online Review

In a little under a month we will be launching the Kickstarter campaign for Joe R. Lansdale's Black Labyrinth Book II illustrated by artist Santiago Caruso. The campaign will enable us to make the book an unforgettable work of art, from Joe R. Lansdale's writing, Santiago's provocative illustrations, a new level of interior design and will enable us to have the book printed at a new printer based in the Portland area with an offset press. If the Kickstarter is a success the project will be fully funded, enabling us to have the book in stock and available in all editions on publication date of November 11th, 2014.

The more successful the campaign, the more enhanced the book will become. For example: Santiago Caruso is ready to create 4 B&W interior illustrations and one full color book cover for Book II (as he did with Book I: The Walls of the Castle by Tom Piccirilli) but if we reach our first stretch goal in the Kickstarter campaign, Santiago will create 8 color interior illustrations, one full color book cover, illustrated signature sheets and will add some nice touches for the design itself (chapter headings, footers etc.).

Kickstarter contributors will receive/be shipped the book at least one month in advance of publication date, including signed limited edition hardcovers. They will also be eligible for exclusive awards such as having a conversation with author Joe R. Lansdale, a self-portrait of themselves illustrated by Santiago Caruso, having a short story written by Joe R. Lansdale based on one of their ideas and much more. Every contributor will be acknowledged on the upcoming BlackLabyrinthBooks.com website and some will be immortalized in the book itself.

Contributors will also be part of the journey during the creation of Black Labyrinth Book II. They will be updated with information from sketches of the book's art, updates on Joe's manuscript all the way to the production of the signed limited edition hardcovers.

For more information on the upcoming Kickstarter campaign or Black Labyrinth, please visit our Facebook countdown event at: https://www.facebook.com/events/237621056390717

We are excited to pour all of our creative efforts into this project, and hope you join us during the campaign.

Read Joe Lansdale's recent statement on his upcoming novella for Black Labyrinth Book II below:



Currently working with Black Labyrinth to create a book of psychological horror, and well, a little bit of overt horror as well. Itís a novella, not a novel, but there will be plenty of room for shadow and sounds, for whatever it takes to scare a reader. What if there is a prison graveyard on an island for the worst of the worst. A place where the unclaimed go. Those who have been executed or died by disease or old age would end up on this island. Taken there by ferry in the middle of the night to be deposited in the ground like rotten rutabaga seeds. And what if on that island are two caretakers, a gravedigger and the ferry man. And with the remains of all that evil there in this dark, lost place in the middle of a great bubble of sea and wind and starry night sky, something goes way damn wrong.

And it isnít at all what you think it is.

Thatís the premise for my novella for Black Labyrinth. The money for the writing of the book, as well as the artwork by Santiago Caruso, the actual construction and publication of the novella will be, hopefully, provided by a Kickstarter program ran by Chris Morey, the editor of Black Labyrinthís novellas. If you want to be a part of it, check this link out: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...joe-r-lansdale
